Whilst the concept of shared storage is universally accepted, issues around security and ease of access remain key consideration factors when investing in systems for both businesses and individuals. “As the global demand for visual and digital content increases, the greater the demand for secure, easy-to-access and cost effective storage solutions,” says Shaun De Ponte, director at Digilogic, a workflow solutions company providing shared storage solutions for the post production industry.
Businesses are essentially created to provide solutions and those that excel are the ones that are able to deliver the best value to clients. “Digilogic builds technical production and post production workflow solutions, from a simple one person edit workstation to high-end broadcast post production and workflows for television, commercials, features, online and so on”, continues De Ponte. “Our knowledge base in reality television, digital imaging, feature films and on-set colour grading is what keeps us relevant in an ever-changing industry”.
Digilogic is the first South African company to be Certified Technical Partners for Tiger Technology shared storage. “Having worked with several storage systems over the years, we were initially drawn to the technology by its highly competitive pricing level,” says Arno Durandt, director at Digilogic. “But it soon became clear that this was not just a cost effective option, it has innovative capability as well.
“The Tiger Technology series offers a true Avid file system emulation that provides true native Avid workflows”. It is also certified to host Adobe Anywhere on their appliances, providing complete and simple multi-user shared storage workflow solutions, including storage workflow solutions, media management tools for digital media and content centric production. “The system provides high speed scalable solutions that are easy to manage without the requirement for permanent IT staff to administer”, continues Durandt.
“Our association with an established international player such as Tiger Technology has created a platform, not just to extend our business offering and client base, but also enables us to be at the forefront of technical advancements in the software and shared storage arena,” concludes De Ponte.
